Experts differ, but most agree that approximately 1 in 3 Caucasians and 1 in 2 Hispanics and African Americans born after 2000 will become Type 2 Diabetics. The CDC estimates that the number of Diabetic Americans will double or triple in 3 to 4 decades. Why? Because Diabetes is lifestyle, diet, and exercise preventable; yet, the junk food and fast food advertisers as well as the talking heads on T.V. are seducing a new generation into the very choices that will insure a high Diabetic rate. That’s the main reason. You have probably been told that Diabetes is incurable. This is wrong. Diabetes doesn’t just appear out of thin air usually goes through stages.
STAGE 1 – Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar occurs subtly and some of the symptoms are irritability, lightheadedness, or headaches if meals are missed, shaky or jittery, tremors, blurred vision, craving sweets, and easily being upset. If diet and lifestyle changes are made at this stage, it will usually not progress to the next stage.

STAGE 2 – Insulin Resistance – high blood sugar results after insulin receptor sites shut down, usually from a long period of hypoglycemia, and now insulin has fewer receptor sites to bind with. This is the pre- diabetic state. Some of the symptoms are fatigue after meals, sweet cravings not relieved by eating sweets, weight gain around the waist, low energy, frequent urination, increased thirst and urination.

STAGE 3- DIABTETES

These conditions can be caught and stopped in their tracks with a proper functional blood work and metabolic assessment. 1 in 4 Americans are either pre-Diabetic or Diabetic. Diabetes shortens your lifespan. It also increases your risk of cardiovascular problems including heart attack and stroke as well as the risk of Alzheimer’s, High Blood Pressure, Dental Disease, Pregnancy Complications, Neuropathy, and even Blindness. Diabetics are also being misled to take Statin drugs (another subject). The sad part, according to the Boston Hearald, is that 15% of families don’t want dietary advice because it is not paid for by insurance companies. I can personally attest that for so many people the buck stops with the insurance company. Very unfortunate and very bad for their health and future.

In America, we now have no choice but to take care of our own health. The so called insurance companies will only pay for crisis or sick care. There is nothing “health” about health insurance. They should rename it and tell you what it really is. We are on our own when it comes to staying healthy and staying out of the sick care American system.
